    Louisiana Constitutional Carry Bills Pass.

    Louisiana: Constitutional Carry Bills Have Now Passed Both Legislative Chambers
    WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 2021 Louisiana: Constitutional Carry Bills Have Now Passed Both Legislative Chambers

    Recently, the Louisiana House passed Constitutional Carry legislation, House Bill 596. Its passage, as well as the Senate’s passage of Senate Bill 118, mark the success of a Constitutional Carry measure passing in both chambers of the Louisiana Legislature, all but ensuring a version will hit Governor Edwards’ desk. Both measures were passed from their chamber of origin with bipartisan, supermajority support. At the same time, the House also passed concealed carry legislation, House Bill 124.

    Constitutional Carry Legislation, Senate Bill 118 and House Bill 596, remove the requirement for law-abiding individuals to obtain a concealed handgun permit before being allowed to carry concealed, a handgun for self-defense. This important legislation ensures that citizens are able to exercise their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. These measures do not affect previously issued carry permits, and allow citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Louisiana permits, to do so. House Bill 596 was amended in committee to provide free optional online training for those who wish to view it before obtaining a permit.

    House Bill 124 clarifies Louisiana’s concealed carry laws that cause individuals with a concealed carry permit to possibly be arrested for carrying a knife, while also lawfully carrying a firearm for self-defense. This is not the intent of the law, and HB 124 clears this up.

    Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts and your email for more information as these measures advance through the legislature. Please be sure to stay in contact with your State Lawmakers, urging their support of these important measures.​

    Excellent. So, now do they do some sort of reconciliation between the bills passed in House and Senate before they send it off to the Governor and prepare to make an run at override?

    I’m hoping Texas doesn’t kill the intent of the bill with amendments. May 31 is the deadline. These amendments could be the *poison pill* used to run out the clock. If this was to happen I would bet it was a back room deal between both sides to prevent it from passing while saving face with their constituents. The vote was along party lines.

    Texas does not have a say in Louisiana Law.

    Both Bills have only passed their respective chambers of origination. And HB596 passed 72-28. That is not enough to override a veto. They have a long way to go. But, to answer your question; yes. They would most likely join them together for the final push.

    He's already said he was not going to sign any of them. However, he also said that the no training requirements were his main reason for objection, So.........! I guess he possibly maybe could come around if training is mandated, but that reduces the Bills' intents to more permission slips.

    The bottom line is, we have to sway more Legislators to vote yes for one of these. Only 1 democrat voted yes to HB118 and he was white! You can interpret that the way you wish.

    I thought that 2/3 was required for override? 72-28 does the trick. Am I missing something? Did some miss the vote?

    2/3 of 104 is 70 (well, 69 1/3 but I afraid we won't find 1/3 of a rep) so yes, 72 is enough.
